High-Tech Prevention

To give our patients unparalleled oral health protection, Dr. Kendall and Dr. Fox at Excellence In Dentistry have partnered with CariFree to offer our patients the best in preventive dental care. Bacterial infection, genetic predisposition, and a lack of saliva can lead to cavities. While bad eating habits and poor oral hygiene certainly have their role to play, some people have simply been dealt a bad hand by nature.

With a culture test and a one-minute swab of CariFree, our Anchorage dentists can determine whether you have bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease are present. We can also measure and identify the level of decay caused by the bacteria.
In case you do have a bacterial infection, we will prescribe you a rinse protocol that is personalized for your specific disease and risk criteria. This rinse will help fight and treat the infection, minimizing your chances of getting additional cavities. CariFree is one of the best product systems that has been introduced to this day to prevent cavities. It battles the bacteria by neutralizing the pH levels in your mouth, leaving your teeth healthy, strong, and cavity-free.

Dr. Kendall and Dr. Fox may recommend the use of CariFree after doing a thorough checkup of your oral health. If there are signs of dental caries caused by the growth of cavity-causing bacteria, they will recommend the best mode of treatment, thereby reducing your risk of future dental decay.

Tooth Decay Prevention is Always Better

At Excellence In Dentistry in Anchorage, Alaska, we believe in a preemptive approach to oral health. Prevention is always better than a cure and knowing how to prevent disease is the best approach in dental medicine.

CariFree products have been designed with this in mind. They are made not only to treat a certain issue but also to make sure it never comes back. However, the chances of a certain bacterial infection or disease not coming back also depends on you. If you follow the instructions and preventive care advised by our Anchorage dentists, chances are your oral health will remain in good condition for a long time. Fortunately, CariFree makes this easy, as prevention products aren’t just toothpaste and rinses, but also include gums, lollipops, and more!

Even though regular flossing and brushing are effective in taking care of cavity-causing dental caries, sometimes they are not as effective as we might think. CariFree works to not only destroy the harmful bacteria but it has been formalized to promote the growth of healthy bacteria. This gives CariFree an edge over other conventional methods like brushing and flossing alone.
